I have two domains in my exchange server accepting mail, fcbrokers.com & gatewayagency.com

I have several accounts setup for gatewayagency.com but once of the users wants to recieve anything and everything if an email account is not setup for it.
e.g. jdoe@gatewayagency.com is the email and someone sends to doe@gatewayagency.com

Is there a setup in exchange or some software that can handle this type of request?
I currently use GFI MailEssentials for their Antispam but i didnt see anything in there about it.

does this work on exchange 2003 sp2? If so, do you have visual basic 6.0 to build the dll its requiring?

i don't have visual basic 6.0

exchange 2000 and 2003 are similar in many ways but i cannot comment whether this will work on exchange 2003 or not.

there could also be some third party tools / scripts through which this could be done, but i am not aware of them

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

What you are looking for is a catch all mailbox.

However, I have to ask are you really sure you want to do this?

The user will get 99% junk. On my home server I filter out unknown recipients. My server blocks 2,500 messages A DAY that are addressed to invalid recipients.
Most of those will be junk, virus or other garbage that are not required and just use up bandwidth trying to get them delivered.

unfortunately yes...the user does realize he will get a massive amount of spam...but I also have GFI so it should place the SPAM in the specified folder.
the user "feels" he is looking customers because the customer emails an address not on our system.

Do you know of another method for the catch all?

Anyone know the steps to create an ActiveX DLL like it said in the link on Visual Studio 2005?

You could look at Mailbasket. That is a catch all script: http://www.turbogeeks.com/utilities/
